PROUDLY SUPPLYING ISLANDERS SINCE 1968
Gorey Wine Cellar has been trading for over 50 years. When I took over the business in 2015 there were around 90 wines which my predecessor (the wonderful Mirto Sappé) had hand selected over the years.
Today our unique cellar stocks over 500 labels from some of the world’s finest winemakers. We specialise in wines from France (especially Burgundy), Italy, & South Africa, nearly all of which are imported directly from the winemakers.
Having worked in the hospitality and wine industries for over 30 years, I am passionate about helping you to discover new wines whilst doing my best to provide professional and personal customer service.
The cellar is all about quality not quantity; as we say “Life is Too Short to Drink Bad Wine”! That doesn’t mean that all the wines are expensive however – there are plenty in the £10 - £20 range, and we also have a small selection of spirits and beers as well as the finest Cognac (Grosperrin), Armagnac (Darroze), Calvados (Adrien Camut) & vintage rums.
The minimum online order is £75 which includes free island-wide delivery 5 days a week (£100 during November & December), but if you really want to get a feel for the place, go off the beaten track slightly and pay us a visit!
I look forward to meeting you soon,
Matt Barnes, Owner

When you’re dealing with top quality wine, nearly all producers are either certified organic or are at least working with organic principles.The large majority will not use any pesticides or herbicides in the vineyards, or chemicals in the winery other than minimal quantities of sulphur dioxide. The truth is, most would rather spend their valuable time focussing on the contents of the bottle than on additional paperwork required for certification.
Well over 50% of all the wine in the shop is organic, but only those producers who have received official certification have the Organic Wine logo on their label.
